Short Stories & Poems…

In this place, I will attempt, and I do use that word ATTEMPT loosely because once I get started, it’s hard to turn me off…I will “attempt” to write and discuss short stories and poems as well as welcome any of yours for reading and discussion and entertain recommendations for some that I haven’t read. I am working on my first novel right now called “Reverof Gardens” which is sci-fi murder mystery that takes place in the 1940’s. I love OLD HOLLYWOOD if you couldn’t tell by my gravatar! So let’s GETSOCIALIZED!

    Waking Dream

    Waking in the night to dreams I soon forget,
    A looming fear of what’s to come, and yet…
    I cannot see what’s through the mist or what may be in store…
    All I know is that I must go on to see what lies before…

    Oh this is just lovely. The imagery is so rich, despite the fact that you describe so little of the scene. I keep getting the feeling of someone waking up outside in a forest, either before sunrise or sunset. I can’t wait to see more.

    Drifting in and out of life

    awake and half asleep…dreaming, living, loving, hating…

    many dark sides of me…

    Wandering, walking, running, crawling…

    through shadows to the light…

    always close but never there…my happy ending just in sight…

    pressing, pushing, fighting, screaming…

    look how far I came…

    if I fail at trying to live…only me there is to blame…

    sitting, thinking, resting, loving…watching, smiling, playing, glowing…

    a legacy I’ve left behind…seeing love and smiles in her face

    the sweet and innocent kind…

    youth is just a dear old friend that sits beside me here…

    reminding me of life and love and how they are too dear..

    but at the start one forgets there is an end to anything we do…

    but if we live it like our last…at the end its as good as new…

    Before I knew you I was one…
    In search of the deeper thing
    What it was I did not know
    Until you showed the way

    A string of no ones leading up to you
    Giving an idea of love to a lonely few
    filling what I thought was empty for way to long
    Not realizing that it was there all along
    Looking but not seeing, I must say
    Until you showed the way…

    Constant thought on who you were
    Would HE see fit to make me sure
    as it progressed I wondered
    And then one day it came to me
    like distant loud thunder
    that in order for me to receive
    what I had asked for
    I had to learn to recognize the knock
    coming from my door

    At last I had the strength to open up the door
    And accept the gift of love and life and be filled with so much more…
    God blesses those who patiently wait until his final say…
    And so he sent you to take my hand
    and now you lead the way…
